Architectural Acoustics (comprises of both building & interior acoustics) is the science and engineering of understanding and controlling of noise transmission from a building’s envelope to interior spaces and vice versa. Architectural acoustics analyses the relationship between architecture, design and the aural environment and how buildings can mediate between these elements to mitigate the effects of noise nuisance which can have negative effects on productivity, health, wellbeing, and quality of life.
Major sound sources affecting a building
Why conduct Acoustics analysis?
Poor acoustics in a building is a nuisance that has multiple negative effects on both well-being and functionality of a premise or space. Acoustics analysis enables sufficient control over noise transmission ensuring that the quality and functionality of a space is not compromised and it is often required by local authorities base on building codes and uses.
